Eat Healthier & Easier with Spiralized Veggies

October 11, 2018

One of our favorite ways to incorporate more vegetables into our diets is by spiralizing them! Vegetables can get a little tiresome to chop, especially when you’re short on time and we’re all about simplifying self-care with food at Just Add Water™!  Bonus, you can easily recreate your favorite noodle recipe like spaghetti and meatballs or Vietnamese bún chay (noodle salad) by replacing noodles with spiralized zucchini or carrots.

Below are a few creative and fun ways to spiralize your favorite veggies to the next level:

 

1)    Chilled Asian-Inspired Noodle Salads – Cucumbers are one of our favorite food to help keep us hydrated. Spiralize some cucumbers and toss it with some garlic, fish sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice and sesame noodles for an Asian-inspired noodle salad!

 

2)    Hot Italian Pasta – Pasta is one of our guilty pleasures. But why feel any guilt when you can turn up the healthy by replacing regular ol’ pasta with zucchini, carrots, or even butternut squash? It’s an easy way to add all the health benefits from root vegetables like fiber, essential vitamins and minerals to your meal. The vegetables give a slight crunch, similar to pasta that’s cooked al dente.

 

3)    Sizzling Fajitas – Who says zucchinis and gourds are the only vegetables you can spiralize? When we’re not up to chopping onions and bell peppers, we run it through the spiralizer. It takes a fraction of the time compared to chopping, and you’ll never shed a tear. The size is perfect to add to your favorite fajita recipe.

What are some of your favorite ways to spiralize?
